    Exclamation Apps to SD Card Latest Froyo

    I've asked this in a couple of threads, I'll try it here.

    There was a set of commands we used in terminal to get our apps, most of them anyway, moved to the SD card.

    However when the latest Froyo came out I had to wipe and for whatever reason all the apps on my sd card are now on the Droid.

    I did try the commands for the previous version of Froyo but it failed.

    Can someone give me the commands I need so I can move apps with this latest version of Froyo? I can't pay money but it never hurts to keep your friendly local moderator happy.

    Is this what you are looking for?




    Using Terminal Emulator

    type

    su (enter)
    pm setInstallLocation 2 (enter)

    If that works then it will seem that nothing is being done but it HAS!!! go to your applications in settings and you will now have the option to move to the SD card.

    OK. Some people are getting a "pm" error

    If this happens you have bad mapping.......this is no big deal you just have a different step....here it is...

    Using terminal emulator

    type

    su (enter)
    cd /system/bin (enter)
    sh pm setInstallLocation 2 (enter)

    This should definately work

    Pay attention to spacing and capital letters. Everything is lower case except the "I" and "L" in "setInstallLocation"

    spacing. In my sencond way of apps2sd the line is cd(space)system/bin and the third line is sh(space)pm(space)setInstallLocation(space)2

    Hope this helps

    huskur, you just earned a get out of jail free card. Thanks you, second set of commands worked.

    I'm certain that's what I ran previously, I had to have made an input error.

    No problem Hook! That's what we are all here for, helping each other.

    I keep word documents saved in a folder of important commands like this so i can always fall back on them instead of having to search forever.

    These commands were someone else's. I just modified them to make it easier to understand when typing them in

    The only small gripe I seem to have with this is that the app icons I keep on my homescreen that are sent to the sd card change to green droid bot icons once I reboot my phone, similar to that of the market icon. But forceclosing launcher beta pro(my default launcher) seems to change them back..weird. I had the same thing with the apps2sd app. Btw, I think the instructions for the terminal text to do this should be a stickied thread. I think people would really appreciate that, despite the icon bug.

    Does this allow all apps to be moved to the sd card? I rooted this morning and am running bugless beast v0.4 and some of my apps have the option of moving to the sd card and some don't.

    yes, it does. I'm running bb.4 and this script allows you to move any app to the sd card.

    I would advise against putting any apps with widgets you use on the sd card, as the widgets will no longer work.
